There is no dearth of sites to see in Paris. From the iconic Eiffel Tower to Disneyland, Paris has dozens of sites where you can spend hours simply marveling at the architecture, the history or heritage, the relevance or just the crowd of tourists doing exactly what you would be doing. There are very few cities in the world that is as picturesque as Paris. It is thus not surprising that the beautiful photography of Paris is one major factor that compels people to visit the city of lights, at least once in a lifetime.
Let us talk about the sites that you should not miss out on while in Paris. Also, don’t forget to carry your camera. It is these sites that make for beautiful photography of Paris.
- The Eiffel Tower is certainly the most popular landmark. Standing tall at a height of 301 m, made of iron and built by the company of Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, this tower at Champ de Mars draws millions of tourists every year.
- The Louvre should be your next stop. It is on the right bank of River Seine but pretty much in the middle of the city. It is one of the world’s largest museums and is a very important historic site. A little more than three hundred years old, the museum hosts the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, Venus de Milo by Alexandros of Antioch, Winged Victory of Samothrace, Virgin of the Rocks by Leonardo da Vinci and the Code of Hammurabi among countless others. This site alone should take you several hours that is if you are passionate about artwork.
- Notre Dame de Paris or the Notre-Dame Cathedral is another jewel. This historic cathedral was opened about seven hundred years ago after almost two hundred years of construction. You can imagine the timelessness of the architecture.
- The other sites to see in Paris are Musee d’Orsay, Arc de Triomphe, Sacre-Coeur, Palais Garnier, Sainte-Chapelle, Ile de la Cite, Musee de l’Orangerie, Louvre Palace, Ile Saint-Louis, Musee Rodin and many more.
Paris, also known as the city of love and city of lights, has something marvelous at most nooks and corners of its city limits and beyond. France is one of the very few countries in the world that has an uninterrupted past and a well documented history. Many civilizations don’t have factual or verifiable records of their past. It is this chronicling of the past that makes beautiful photography of Paris and its sites all the more enticing.
